Hendrons Building on Dominick Street

The 1940s Hendrons Building on Dominick Street, Dublin 1, will be demolished if a planning application is successful.

AB Properties has applied for permission to Dublin City Council for a 14-storey mixed use development at Hendrons Building at the junction of Upper Dominick Street and Western Way, Dublin.

The planning application is proving controversial with the artists who have workshops there, one of whom said that they feel that they are being "pushed out". The building is one of few modernist buildings in the city.

The proposal is to demolish the existing building and build 48 apartments, four live/work units, 32 apart-hotel units, offices, a neighbourhood centre, and an artists' gallery, studio, and a shop, in three blocks.
